The sexy and emotional companion novella to the New York Times bestselling romance HERO.

However, when her new boss discovers her secret he blackmails her, intent on using Nadia’s popularity to make them the number one morning show in Massachusetts. He wants her to be part of uncovering the city’s biggest scandal – a secret billionaire Caine Carraway is hiding.
Soon Nadia is thrown into the path of Caine’s best friend: sexy, wealthy bachelor Henry Lexington. But she doesn’t encounter the dashing high society gentleman Henry is purported to be. Instead she’s faced with an insulting and defensive villain who misjudges her at every turn.
When Henry finally realizes the truth, and decides to make amends, Nadia wants nothing to do with him. But she underestimates his determination and charm and soon they find themselves embroiled in an intense, passionate affair.
An affair Nadia knows must come to an end before their feelings grow any deeper and he discovers her secrets.
After all, Henry Lexington isn’t the only one who played the part of a villain once…
**READ HERO PRIOR TO VILLAIN TO AVOID SPOILERS**
Samantha Young has delivered yet again with this exciting, contemporary romance novel! I have enjoyed many of Samantha’s previous work and was not disappointed with Villain. If you have read Hero then you will be familiar with Henry Lexington, Caine Carraway’s bachelor friend, who sweeps women off their feet, charming the knickers off them before moving onto the next.
Nadia Ray is a gorgeous meteorologist, unfortunately suffering at the hands of her sexist boss. What she doesn’t anticipate is that her Boss’ blackmailing her will lead her right into the hands of Henry Lexington. To make matters worse, he’s this hugely gorgeous, stupidly sexy, hunk of a man that she just can’t seem to resist.
As always with Samantha Young’s impeccable writing, we fall in love with the characters, their surroundings and their life! I always find myself getting slightly obsessed with the characters in her books because they are so true to life they could be the neighbour you’re secretly spying on! I loved how both Hero and Villain tie together almost naturally, the way little words entwine themselves bringing both novels together as one!
If you’re looking for a romantic, fairy tale with a few twists and turns then I would highly recommend both Hero & Villain to you! I hope we have maybe just a little extra from both Caine and Henry!
